foot pampering

Your bath time is the best time for your weekly home pedicure, the warm soapy bath water ensures that your feet and toenails are soft and clean for your pedicure.

Your pedicure for pretty feet begins in your bath; this is where you use your pumice stone or sloughing cream. *Remove any nail polish from toenails before entering your bath.*

You want gently work off any callused, rough skin around your heels, on the balls of your feet, and along the sides of your soles.

Using a pumice stone on the bottoms of your feet tickles but you should not be using your pumice stone so hard that it hurts you.

If your feet are suffering from any warts or corns, you must leave these to your podiatrist, do not pick at, or remove yourself. You will do more harm than could and put your feet at risk of infection. In addition, that does not make for pretty feet.

When you finished your bath and as you dry, do not neglect to dry your feet well. Include the top, sides, and bottom of your feet when you apply your after bath body moisturizer

Using the orange stick clean the sides and behind toenails. Trimming your toenail with scissors is a better choice than using nail clippers. Nail clippers can be brutal if your toenails are brittle, sometimes causing cracks deep down the center of the nail.

Your nail should end just where your toe ends and not extend past. While length may be attractive for your fingernails, it is not for your toenails.home pedicure

You will use your emery board next shaping and smoothing you’re just cut nails. You do not need to be as concerned about shaping your toenails as you do with your fingernails.
